Battery, range, and charging
The battery has a gross capacity of 68kWh and a net capacity of 64,8kWh, meaning you have a 3,2kWh buffer for protection. (4,7%). The WLTP range is 463 km (288 mi).

If you assume you lose 5 minutes driving per charge stop in addition to the charge time, the optimum charge area is from 1% to 81% resulting in an actual charge speed including time loss on 147kW. Each charge session would take 21 minutes and 10 seconds.
For the theoretical 1000km challenge, starting with a full battery and driving at 120km/h (75 mph), assuming optimal driving conditions and consumption of 20kWh/100km, 1000km will take 9 hours and 15 minutes to drive. This trip will require three charge session(s) charging from 1% to 71%. The total time lost for charging will be 56 minutes.
For level 1 and level 2 AC charging, the onboard charger supports up to 11KW charging. As a result, you can charge the battery 0-100% from home in about 5 hours and 53 minutes.
